this a book written by a catholic from wips business, a jew from virginia, a baptist from california. basically saying we understand that when the american people entrusted us in the majority we dropped the ball and messed up. we spent too much money. we were not good at the wards of the taxpayers and we have to own up for that and we can't let it happen again. and what we are trying to do is go out around america and recruit people to come to congress not to make congress a career but to come and advance a cause. and the cause that we are asking these new recruits around arica runninging for congress is to help us get this country back on track. to advance the principless of economic liberty and fiscal conservatism. these are the things we need to do. and if we are entrusted with a majority again we have to be who we say we are. that is the problem. we committed the biggest sin of them all in politics, hypocrisy. they ran as fiscal conservatives but we didn't necessarily govern like this. >> rose: during the eight years of the bush administration. >> the public majority which was ev

could though? host: ok. we'll go to john in west virginia. your take on this. good morning. caller: hi. i would just like to comment on the fact that -- wait one second. sorry. i'd just like to talk about how obama -- host: we'll go to betty next in north carolina. caller: good morning. i just want to say that 9/11 is not the ghost of bin laden day. it's a day where americans want to express their outrage. and we're a free society. we have a right to do that, and we should. when almost 3,000 americans who are not at war are killed, murdered, and the roots go very deep in all this. you know. the muslims are not all out to kill us and we don't live in a fear. we know that their religion has been kidnapped and used by terrorists to fulfill their aims. but 9/11 fits right up there with pearl harbor day and d day. and i think we've become crass and say we shouldn't talk about it any more. we've talked about it enough. i think that would be wrong. thank you. host: we'll come back with a few more minutes of your phone calls and then follow that up with our roundtable. our guest on "newsmakers
the november election. we're joined by former governor of virginia, doug wilder, the first african-american governor. good morning to you, governor. >> good morning, gretchen, brian. always good to be here. >> gretchen: good to have you as well. so what do you make of what the president said and then when you look at the support and how that's dwindling in the african-american community, 26% of democrats now say they're excited compared with 80% when president obama was elected. >> that's the real issue. it's not really an issue as to whether people don't still want to see president obama do well. most people in the nation want to see him do well, want to see the nation do well. the real question is is there a transference effect. is he able to say, listen, vote for such and such a people or such and such a persons because if you do that, it could help me. now, you got midterm elections almost a month away. you've got people looking pretty bad in some instances, particularly in the congress and the house. and is it enough at this time to do that? when you have this lady in atlanta

: virginia beach, mark, independent line. caller: i am starting to get involved in politics and things like that i am finding it hard to comprehend because you're saying you cannot talk reveal private investments that you are getting of millions and millions of dollars, but again, you owe so much money and [unintelligible] and the federal government goes and punishes because they've made their money probably and kept it to themselves. where are you getting all of this money from? host: michael, we've got your point. let me show the viewers the headline in "usa today." ehab line is that mid debt -- midterm campaign war chests are crammed. guest: we were looking at a billion dollars election cycle back in march and that was kind of a trajectory of spending in the elections of a last several cycles, not taking into account the fact that the recent decision could unleash a far more money in the election cycle. we were looking at a baseline spending, which would still be 30% above the previous midterm with the success by the candidates and these interest groups. i think the press will be far hig
in northern virginia which seems obvious there, speak to small business, find out what you need, find out how you can help them. what i have not seen and what i've read so far is appealing to social issues. have they been sidelined in 2010? >> they've not been sidelined. social issues are always important in the political process. i think it's safe to say when you ask voters today, top of mind response, what's the most pressing issue facing the country today, they'll say jobs and the economy, probably followed closely by debt and excessive federal spending. but i think one of the things that's been clear from this document, from what we've seen of it, and it's not all out there obviously, but from what i understand, that the focus will be on jobs, economy, national issues, and it's not a full two-year governing document, it's to say here's what we're going to do when we first get control because these are priorities, and i think you have to prioritize the most important function for the majority is scheduling on the floor of the house what bills you're going to bring and what republicans are
